– Ecuador’s President Calls On Military, Police to Prepare for Turmoil (teleSUR, Aug 4, 2015):
The call for the loyalty from the armed forces comes amid political tensions in the country.
Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa called on the police and military Monday to be prepared for destabilizing attempts by opposition groups ahead of a national strike set for mid-August.
“We need to be ready to confront them with the weapons of the law and the Constitution,” Correa said according to local news agency La Hora. ”To fight for the homeland, dear soldiers — without hoping for compensations — that’s the vocation of the truly uniformed.”
